Damian Lillard is no stranger to NBA All-Star Saturday Night events. He’s participated in the Skills Competition, the three-point shootout, and the rookie-sophomore Rising Stars Challenge. During the 2020 All-Star Weekend, he’ll do something completely new. Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that Lillard will spend the evening on the mic as his rap persona, Dame D.O.L.L.A., throwing down four-bar rhymes in addition to three-pointers.
Unique wrinkle for NBA All-Star Weekend: Portland's Damian Lillard will perform musically during Saturday night events in Chicago, sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) February 6, 2020
Lillard has released albums and performed at live events during the NBA summer break, but this will be the first time his skills will be on display during the year, at an NBA-wide event.
Preparing for a musical performance is intense. Standing ovation to Lillard for taking on the project and showing off his musical side during the event.
